In ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ filmmaker Michael Moore famously criticized President George W. Bush’s reaction to the news that airliners had struck the World Trade Center towers in New York City on September 11, 2001.

In the days before the 10th anniversary of the attacks, the National Geographic Channel sat down with the former president, who explained in his own words what was going through his mind in those moments and the details he still recalls (like Card’s “Massachusetts accent”).
